08/30/2018 - Kittitas County Fair

1 hour 28 min ago
The Kittitas County Fair, first organized in 1885, is held every Labor Day weekend, and coincides with the famous Ellensburg Rodeo. 

The Kittitas County Fair is a more traditional fair, with lots of emphasis on agriculture, livestock, homemade goods and entertainment. It's also home to Frontier Village where patrons can take a step back in time, and learn more about the county's history. Buy a piece of penny candy (yes it's really only 1 cent!) or a giant pickle at the General Store, take your chance at panning for gold near the village's blacksmith, and don't forget to grab a root beer from the Rocky Saddle Saloon on your way out!

See you at the fair!
